ABSTRACT                         FULL PAPER

The scope of this paper is to highlight how a woman’s freedom to express her sexuality is shunned and suppressed even in 21st century. It intends to explain how expressing sexuality is way more than biological sexual drives and pleasures. The paper discusses  how socio-cultural norms, gender roles, familial set up, patriarchal mindset, law and regulatory system, media and religion hold up the barrier, labeling female sexuality as a taboo and restricting women from expressing it. . Though each of these can be discussed further in detail, this paper will touch upon the double-standards that exist just for women. There is a model of good girl that a girl is supposed to live up to throughout her life. Throughout it’ll explain what happens if a woman chooses to break free and deviates from the guided sexual morality that is imposed on her. It’ll conclude by explaining how this suppression promotes patriarchy, limiting a woman’s role and contribution. Accepting women sexuality will not only provide them with their basic right to equality but also empower them.

Key words: female sexuality, suppressed, sexual expression
